Throwback Concert: Incubus at Mohegan Sun Arena 2009

Throwback Concert: Incubus at Mohegan Sun Arena 2009

Incubus is a band that doesn’t come to Connecticut often. In fact, in the last decade the alternative rock band from California has played in our state only twice: 2019 at Foxwoods and 2011 at Mohegan Sun.

That’s why many of us where excited when Live Nation had announced in early February that Incubus (with 311) were coming to Hartford’s XFINITY Theatre in August 2020. But unfortunately, due to COVID-19, that show has been cancelled. Bummer!

Hopefully in 2021, when Incubus celebrates its 30th anniversary as a band, we’ll see them again in Connecticut.

Today we look back the first time Incubus played at Mohegan Sun, in 2009 on their Monuments & Melodies Tour.

Throwback Concert: Van Halen at Mohegan Sun Arena 2012

Throwback Concert: Van Halen at Mohegan Sun Arena 2012

Van Halen fans have been debating for years – who’s better: David Lee Roth or Sammy Hagar?

Both are great in their own way. David was with Van Halen at the beginning and during the height of the band’s popularity. Sammy stepped in and won many fans over with his great stage presence and his vocals on some of Van Halen’s biggest mainstream hits.

It’s been a back-and-forth relationship between the Van Halen brothers and their lead singers. But by 2012, everything was going quite swimmingly with DLR and Van Halen. A new album came out (A Different Kind Of Truth) and a successful tour followed.

Today we look back at Van Halen’s 2012 show at Mohegan Sun Arena.
